Prayer for Today

"O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!...but you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head"
(Psalm 3:1-3)
When David wrote this verse, He was in a very difficult situation. He was actually running for his life from his very own son who wanted to kill him and take over the throne! Can you imagine?! David was probably feeling overwhelmed, distraught, heart-broken, betrayed, and abandoned. Have you ever felt that way? But notice that David didn’t just tell the Lord all about his problems, he told the Lord about his faith when he said, "But you, God, are a shield around me…" David made the choice to focus on God’s goodness no matter what! We have to remember, circumstances may be tough, but God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. You may have a difficult relationship, but God is your Restorer today. You may have an overwhelming need, but God is your Provider today! The doctors may have told you that you have an incurable disease, but God is your Healer today!
Things may look impossible today, BUT WITH GOD all things are possible! If you’ll keep that constant attitude of faith and victory, you’ll see the hand of God move in your life, and you will experience the life of victory He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today

Father God, thank You for always being faithful and working in my life.
Today, I open my heart to You and choose to focus on Your goodness no matter what my circumstances look like. I know that with You, all things are possible. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Leigh, I sure needed that one today! What a blessing it was that it came at the right time and to be drawn to read it. I get chills when the Lord does these amazing things, don't you?

Also, I was wondering if you had a way to video Michelle's performance on Friday - I so want to see it, but cannot go ....

I am glad. Things happen for a reason. NO, I do not have the capibility to video Michelle. I might can try with my camera but the quality will be so poor, I do know that. I noticed that Hewy has asked that someone record. Hopefully they will come through.
